Could the Treatment For the Cold Live In Your Stomach?

The reason I’m writing this article today is because inside my home a common virus is wreaking havoc. That’s right, it’s the middle of winter and we’ve been sucker-punched by the cold. The common cold may be a misnomer. While we say it’s common in daily life, every cold we come down sick with is a variation of a type of virus called the rhinovirus. Rhino (which means nose) viruses form the genesis of most colds you’ll ever have in your life. The Rhinovirus is also different than the flu (influenza) so a distinction needs to be made for those who conflate the two with each other.

These Symptoms May Mean You Suffer From A Medical Mystery

I have a “gut” feeling that you’re not going to like what you hear today. However, I think it’s important you learn about this problem so you can fix it. This is a problem that isn’t yet recognized by the mainstream medical community, so you might not get the help you need there, which is why I’ll tell you about it today.

Interesting Link Between Probiotics And Cancer

In my office, one of the methods I always mention for helping improve overall health is boosting gut health. I’d be willing to guess many of you reading this have probably learned over the past few years that the health of your gut is linked to your total health. It’s why getting good bacteria, known to improve gut health, into your body is so popular now.  Understandably, most people associate improved gut health with less gas and bloat. And that’s a correct association to make. Plenty of Americans who have improved their gut health find their stomach feels better and they break wind a lot less. Many of their spouses notice this too. :) The cool thing about probiotics and gut...

Most people want to lose weight because they think it’ll make them look better...quite a few more people know they should lose weight because it’ll make them feel better.
